Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-11-05 07:13:41 UTC
Description of problem:

%pre and %post scripts need to make sure that updmap.cfg is the one
which is listed by 'texconfig-sys conf' on the original installation
and which is marked as %config by rpm.  Otherwise they create a new,
independent, updmap.cfg in some directory which depends on changeable
ordering in $TEXFONTMAPS variable.

In other words a postinstall scriptlet should be like this:

if [ "$1" = "1" ]; then
  /usr/bin/updmap-sys  --cnffile /usr/share/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg \
     --quiet --nohash --enable Map=kerkis.map

and postuninstall one

if [ "$1" = "0" ]; then
  /usr/bin/updmap-sys --cnffile /usr/share/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg \
     --quiet --nohash --disable kerkis.map

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tetex-font-kerkis-2.0-9.fc5 but this equally applies to

How reproducible:
always and creating updmap.sys is messing up a system as the first found
updmap.sys is used so cleaning that up requires not only removing such
extra configuration files and rerunnig, with a correct configuration
file, updmap-sys for all extra packages with configuration written in
a "wrong" places.  Nasty and I do not see a good way to make that automatic.

Comment 1 Sarantis Paskalis 2005-11-05 15:38:01 UTC
I believe this is a bug in tetex.  texconfig-sys conf specifies
TEXMFSYSCONFIG=/usr/share/texmf-config, and that is where updmap.cfg should be
located.  The marking of /usr/share/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg as config is an rpm
specific thing which should also be changed.

I opened a bug against tetex (bug #172507) and will wait to see the reaction
before closing this.

Comment 2 Sarantis Paskalis 2005-11-06 17:30:36 UTC
Given the discussion in bug #172507, it looks like an interim solution could be
to use a run-time configuration file.  It seems also safe both for systems which
do and do not have tetex-font-cm-lgc installed.

I will update the spec file as suggested in comment #2 of bug #172491.
